About Hong Kong Welcome

Hong Kong Welcome is a community, based in Southampton with the aim of welcoming new residents from Hong Kong to the Solent region in the South of England.

City Life Church Southampton is awarded a grant (details) from the Department for Levelling Up to lead the partnership and develop this website. We are partnering with HongKongers in Britain, Citizens Advice Southampton, UKHK and Welcome Churches to make this welcome as warm and helpful as possible.

Southampton is an official City of Sanctuary. This is a movement of welcome across the UK, from community groups to councils, schools to libraries, these vibrant networks provide support, dignity and welcome to refugees and people seeking sanctuary. With your support, we can make these networks even stronger.
